While promoting his upcoming FX series “Anger Management” Sheen has reportedly been using photos of himself which are technically do not belong to him, but to Warner Bros.
According to The Wrap, the studio has sent a cease-and-desist letter to both Sheens people and FX production company Debmar-Mercury.
“Anger Management” is a series adaptation of the Adam Sandler/Jack Nicholson movie of the same name. Sheen will recreate Nicholson’s role as the offbeat, troubled therapist who seems to have more problems than those he’s meant to help.
Sheen’s new show comes after a bitter and highly publicized battle between Sheen and Warner Bros.
After years of pour behavior and public attacks against his bosses and Warner Bros. in general, Sheen was fired from the top-rated CBS comedy. He sued Warner Bros. for $100 million, but agreed to a settlement of $25 million to cover what his final appearances on the show.
He has since been replaced by Ashton Kutcher.
